  • Important Information Regarding the Xbox and Apple TV Apps

    1 day ago

    Chelsea RT Community Manager

    Hi everyone,


    We have some very important news for you regarding the Xbox and Apple TV apps.


    First, there is a big update being released this Wednesday that will affect how the community can view livestreams on these devices.


    Starting this week, all livestreams will now happen in a single place: RTTV. You can find the livestreams via a single URL (http://roosterteeth.com/live/rt-tv) on the desktop website or the Live aspect of our mobile apps on iOS and Android. Additionally, unlike the previous way we did livestreams, our new RTTV feed now supports Chromecast.


    Unfortunately, because of this shift, RTTV is not compatible with our current Xbox and Apple TV apps. This means that the majority of all livestreams will no longer be able to be viewed on these platforms. You WILL still be able to log into your account on those platforms and all VOD (videos on demand) videos will still be available to watch.


    Secondly, we are discontinuing active support for the Xbox and Apple TV apps. That means that there will be no more patches, updates, or temporary fixes to them. These apps were built on a  previous iteration of RoosterTeeth.com, making updates and enhancements not possible.


    Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns in the comment section. We’ll answer them to the best of our abilities.


    Thank you,

    Chelsea

  • RTX AUSTIN 2019: FLIGHT INFO - COME FLY WITH ME!

    1 week ago

    GeorgeFromGeorgia RT Events Coordinator

    TL;DR - We’ve got flight deals with oneworld alliance for RTX 2019!


    ___________________________________________


    Hey everyone. It’s your resident community member turned events coordinator, George, with another RTX update.


    I’m excited to announce that oneworld alliance and Rooster Teeth have partnered to provide discounted airfare to RTX via participating carriers.


    One of the things we’ve heard from you is the desire for flight deals in addition to the hotel deals we provide. Although we have announced this already, I wanted to make sure there was a dedicated place for information. Here’s what you need to know to get in the air and en route to Austin.


    What is the oneworld alliance?

    oneworld is an airline alliance (group of airlines that work together to better facilitate air travel among their brands) made up of 13 global airlines. The carries who have agreed to help us out are:

    • American Airlines

    • British Airways

    • Cathay Pacific Airways Limited

    • Finnair

    • Iberia Airlines

    • Japan Airlines

    • LATAM Airlines Group S.A.

    • Malaysia Airlines

    • Qantas Airways Limited

    • Qatar Airways Company, Q.C.S.C

    • Royal Jordanian Airlines

    • Sri Lankan Airlines

    How much is the discount and how do I get it?

    Discounts range between 5%-25% and can only be accessed through the booking portal oneworld.com/events using the code OW25A19. While you can do multiple transactions, you can only purchase a maximum of 2 tickets per transaction.


    Discount percentages are applicable to fares in the main cabin or higher. In other words, anything above the basic economy is eligible for a discount. The booking portal won’t show any basic economy options so anything you see will be an eligible discounted fare.


    The exact discount amount depends on the fare, originating location, and selected airline. All of these options can be changed during booking.


    What about people whose preferred airline isn’t listed?

    If you have an airline you like that’s outside the oneworld alliance, that’s okay. We, unfortunately, don’t have deals for outside carriers, but we encourage you to do what’s best for you. Whether you’d prefer to fly basic fares, budget airlines, or a separate major carrier entirely, we understand. This is simply another, potentially cheaper option.


    What if we already purchased our flight?

    If you already purchased your flight, good for you! You’re ahead of the game and probably got a reasonably priced flight regardless. These discounts cannot be retroactively added.


    We understand flights, just like hotels can be a prohibiting factor in a lot of people’s plans for RTX. That’s why we work hard to build partnerships and cultivate deals to help alleviate some of that financial strain. The more the deals are used, the better we can understand and improve in the future. We encourage you to do more research and do what’s best for you, but don’t forget that there are things in place to help if you need it.


    So, quick recap:

    Portal - oneworld.com/events

    Event Code - OW25A19

    Discount Rate - 5%-25%

    Ticket Quantity - Maximum 2 per transaction


    Until next time, cheers!

  • RvB and Beyond

    2 weeks ago

    Joenut

    It feels like just yesterday I was drafting my first journal post to talk about taking over Red vs. Blue from sentient-sugar-high Miles Luna. Now with a mix of strange emotions, I find myself passing the torch on to the next generation.


    The upcoming season of Red vs. Blue - Singularity - which will explode brains and melt faces starting SATURDAY, is brought to you by a brand new creative team.  Well, not brand new. Everyone involved has extensive experience with the series, but by “brand new” I mean not me.


    Writer Jason Weight (@JasonWeight) and Directors Austin Clark (@aclarkislost) and Josh Ornelas (@Josho) have taken over the storytelling of Red vs Blue.


    This announcement of the changing of the guard is more than a little overdue, so to really understand it let’s travel back in time to last summer.


    Around the time Elon Musk was calling the British cave diver who saved those kids “a pedo," Rooster Teeth had some meetings to try and figure out how we were going to staff up some new upcoming projects. I got tapped to take the lead on one of them, which means my responsibilities on Team Red had to be passed on (sorry Sarge). I can’t really say anything about the new thing other than it’s not Red vs. Blue related.


    Obviously, it sucks to leave a series hanging from a cliff in Blood Gulch. But my departure from the show is made much easier with the knowledge that those replacing me are brilliant and incredibly passionate. The series is in great hands.


    Whose hands, you ask?


    The delectable Jason Weight has thrown his… mass... behind writing this season’s 12 episodes. He’s finishing the story I started with Season 16. As my co-writer last season, I was blown away by Jason’s insane talents for writing jokes and dialogue, so you can expect the series to be as witty and clever as ever.


    In order to ease the transition, Jason, Miles, and I sat around for a week and brainstormed the rough outline for the season. What we came up with is an awesomely satisfying conclusion to the Shisno Paradox, something well beyond my original idea for Season 17. This upcoming season is honestly unlike anything I have ever seen before and I can’t fucking wait to watch it along with y’all.


    Bringing that vision to life are two gentlemen who are no strangers to Red vs. Blue. Josh Ornelas and Austin Clark have a combined decade of experience turning video games into stories.


    Josh has been working on RvB since Season 12. I came to rely on him as a creative ace on the last two seasons. Austin Clark has shown awesome talent through his work on the series and the off-season PSAs. Both know how to nail jokes and get the most out of Halo 5.


    Jason, Austin, and Josh will all be making journal posts to talk about this change today. Those posts will be spread randomly throughout the day for no reason whatsoever. 


    And so as my watch ends, I join the rest of you as a Red vs. Blue fan once again.


    Lastly, sorry not sorry for all the movie references.


    So long and thanks for all the fish, 

    Joe (Jax) Nicolosi

  • RTX Community Corner and Community Panels are back, baby!

    3 weeks ago

    kriss Community Manager

    Hello community!


    Very hyped to let you know that RTX Community Panel and Community Corner Submissions are now live. Sign ups will close March 29, 2019 at 11:59pm CT.


    Before you apply for either or both, we would like to offer panel best practices and a short Community Corner FAQ in case you may have any questions.


    Community Panel Best Practices:


     towerPresentations are very helpful in helping you keep track of your discussions, but do not read them word for word. Add your personality and additional thoughts to those bullet points! Your presentation serves as your guideline, not as the panel itself.  


     towerKeep the number of panelists around 4-5 people. You only get one hour to cover the topic(s) you want to address, offer your own expertise and insight, and engage your audience with a Q&A.


     towerIdeal panelists will have solid knowledge of the topics they’re covering, have good chemistry with one another, and are comfortable speaking in front of a crowd.


     towerModerators are highly recommended. They keep the conversation going, on topic, and are cognizant of how much time a question or a topic is taking up.


     towerRemember that you are speaking to an audience that may be curious about who you are and what you’re about, so be as open and welcoming as possible. People in the crowd may not understand inside jokes or specific references like “that one thing that happened a year ago”.


     towerKeep the interactions with the audience to a minimum or until the Q&A. Unless you specifically set up your panel to accept questions during the panel, you and your panelists should be driving the conversations.


     towerLast but certainly not least, when you apply to submit your panel idea, please take your time. Give us a general but solid understanding of what you are bringing to RTX and to the community.


    SUBMIT YOUR PANEL IDEAS HERE -- Application will close March 29, 2019 at 11:59pm CT.


    What is Community Corner?


    If you are of a creative mind, we would love to showcase your work at RTX! Community Corner is a piece of the expo floor that is dedicated to the talented artists in the RT Community. Chosen artists will get one hour to show off their art and network with fellow community members.


    What artwork is accepted?


    All types! The more variety, the better. We have accepted cosplayers, digital and illustration artists, those who are masters of various crafts including airbrushed clothing, storytellers, and much more.


    How does set up work?


    You are responsible for your own space. You will be given extra time outside of your one hour to accommodate for set up and tear down.


    Will Guardians assist with crowd control/line management?


    Yes! A Guardian will be present to assist with crowd control.


    Want to apply for Community Corner?


    SUBMIT A COMMUNITY CORNER APPLICATION HERE -- Application will close March 29, 2019 at 11:59pm CT.


    For a better idea of what to expect from the space itself, here are a couple of photos from the community corner last year featuring @gammakoruchador and @_daks_!

    We look forward to all of the panel and community corner submissions! RTX HYYYYYYYYPE!

  • Rooster Teeth Events in 2019 and RTX London News

    1 month ago

    gus Elite Staff

    I’m back. That’s right - with our beloved Bethany moving on to the next chapter in her life (she’s dead to me), I’m jumping back in to help our awesome events team however I can as they prepare for Live from Austin and RTX Austin. I’m sure my mere presence will inspire them to new levels of greatness. Don’t get me wrong, they’re a great bunch, but who couldn’t benefit from some more Gus in their lives?  That’s the good news. Sadly, I also have some not so great news - we will not be putting on RTX London this year.


    Believe me, this was a difficult decision for all of us. The London show was a ton of fun, but it just did not experience the growth we needed for us to commit to it as a long term event, so we’ve decided to take a break and figure out new ways to take Rooster Teeth to our communities around the world. Our focus is to make more amazing content than ever before, and make RTX Austin the best show it can be for everyone attending.


    We would love for everyone who can to come hang out with us at RTX Austin this year. In an effort to make this easier for our community members in the UK and EU we are working with our partners and putting a few promotions in place.


    • We’re offering a 15% discount on Weekend and Single Day badges if you live in the UK or any European nation. To get your discount please contact RTX Customer Support at rtxevent@roosterteeth.com and you will be given a 15% discount code applicable to Weekend and Single Day badges. We won’t be able to ship badges internationally so they will need to be picked up at Will Call during RTX Austin, and you MUST have a valid photo ID and proof of residence to pick up your order.

    • If you already purchased a badge at the Regular rates (Weekend $116 or Single Day $50-$55) and you are a resident of the UK or any European nation, you are eligible for the 15% discount. To get your partial refund please contact RTX Customer Support at rtxevent@roosterteeth.com. They will document your order number, name, and address to issue a partial refund for the difference of the 15% discount rate. If you purchased at the Early Bird rates (Weekend $99 or Single Day $42.50-$47), please note that this rate is already a 15% discount and we will not issue a partial refund on such orders.

    • Discounts are not applicable to all higher tier badges (Ultra, Platinum, Plus) because they sold out at the Early Bird rates.

    • Oneworld Alliance and Rooster Teeth have partnered to provide discounted airfare to RTX via participating carriers. The promotion applies to flights that occur between July 1, 2019 and July 14, 2019, and must be booked through the attendee portal at oneworld.com/events. You must use the event code OW25A19. Discount percentages are applicable to fares in the main cabin or higher between 5%-25%. The discount amount depends on the fare, originating location, and selected airline.

    • We currently have hotel discounts in place at the Fairmont Austin and JW Marriott.

    Donnie_S Email Marketing Manager

    Hi everyone!


    I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and fill you in on some exciting updates and changes to your Rooster Teeth experience. You may recognize me from your favorite RT Store ads like this one, but my full-time position is Email Marketing Manager. It’s my job to make sure you receive timely and relevant emails and push notifications about the content and merch you love to see from Rooster Teeth.


    For a while now, our Marketing and Engineering teams have been working on improving this experience to ensure that you can control exactly which types of notifications you see from us and how often you see them. We’ve gotten a lot of feedback from the community, and yes, had a few setbacks along the way, but we’re very excited about the work we’ve done and think you will be too. The improvements to our website and apps have resulted in us creating a brand new preference and notification center tailored just for you.


    To find these new features, you can click this link or sign into the RT site and click on your profile in the upper right corner, then click “Settings.” Once you’re on your settings page, you can click the “Notifications” tab to view your specific preferences. At the top, you will see three different ways you can get notifications from us: Email, App, and Web.


    j7xbqvN.jpg


    Below this, you have five notification categories set up for you: Stuff I Like, Content, Community, Store, and Other.


    jXaa1XI.jpg



    Clicking into each of these five categories will show you a range of options to select or deselect based on the category. You can also select how you want to see these communications WITHIN each category (e.g., clicking the “Stuff I Like” category tab, checking the Achievement Hunter box, and then also selecting the “Email” icon within this category).


    SQcpppB.png



    There are too many different combinations of preferences to list here, so I encourage you to visit your own profile and see for yourself!


    Again, our goal with this new feature is to make sure you get notified about the specific things you like and have more control over how and when you see these notifications.


    If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our Community Support team at accounthelp@roosterteeth.com.


    Thanks!


    - Donnie

    yvonne COO

    Hi all, 


    This is a difficult post for me to make.  Today, I am retiring.

    FIRST

    The first person to retire from Rooster Teeth.  Yes, I am that old. Yes, you all kept me young. But now it is time for me to move on to the next chapter in my life.


    I have been connected with Rooster Teeth for over 12 years now, it has been a wonderful, joyful and fun adventure.  I remember the first time I met @burnie in the Buda office, how when going to the Congress office @Joel was the easiest one to talk to.  This is difficult to admit, but since I'm moving on, I'll share with you all; I couldn't tell @gus and @geoff apart for about a year and a half.  Now I don't know how that was possible.  


    I am going to miss everyone here at Rooster Teeth.  And I am going to miss you - The Community - just as much.  As COO of the company many people have asked me if the executive team at Rooster Teeth really values the community, to which I reply "Absolutely Fucking YES!"  You matter so fucking much.  You supported the company from the first day.  You made it possible for us to make the awesome content that we and you LOVE.  We aren't kidding when we say <3.


    I've worked in many different companies over the years and I have to give kudos to the finest, most inclusive, caring company I have ever been associated with.  I love this place, the creativity that is evident wherever I turn.  The passions that each and every one member of our staff has, that passion that allows us to make something so special and then being able to share it with you.  The ability for anyone, color, race, gender to succeed. I was the First women executive, but I will not be the last. 


    I've seen a lot of people come and go at Rooster Teeth, Hell, I hired a big part of them, and now it is my time to go.  My plans include long trips with my husband and dogs, with a goal to visit every National Park in the U.S.  I'm investing in and supporting my step-daughters in their new business venture (Timeless-Trends.com - check it out - yes, a shameless plug), and sitting by the fire in the rocking chair that Burnie gave me reading good (and not so good) romance novels.  Yep, that's what I'm going to do.  And make mosaics - and maybe learn to cook, and plant my roses and find the time to smell  them.  Yep, that's what I'm going to do.  Anything I want to, when I want to. That is my retirement and I can't wait to get started.


    This is the hardest thing I've had to do in a long time, but it is time for me to move on and allow the next generation to pick up the slack - Fight for Women's Rights, Fight for the right to be who you are, Stay strong in your beliefs, Don't be a bully, and Pick up after your dog.


    I'll miss you all.  

    <3

  • Update on gen:LOCK Availability

    1 month ago

    Chelsea RT Community Manager

    Hi all!


    We hope you’re enjoying 2019 as much as we are. Already this year we saw the finale of another amazing volume of RWBY, the start of our brand new series gen:LOCK, and announced a whole bunch of cool programming that is coming real soon. Speaking of gen:LOCK...


    For those of you who have been asking or seeing the comments out there, we would like to confirm that gen:LOCK is unavailable in Japan and China. To better communicate this on our platform, if you are in either of those territories and you go to watch gen:LOCK you will now see the following message instead of a black screen:


    lDmkPm4.jpg


    We thank you for the feedback you have provided and the support you continue to give us. We’ll be sure to roll out more news about gen:LOCK as it becomes available.

     small_blue_diamondUPDATE

    What is an Autograph Lottery Code?

    We understand the phrasing for the autograph signing perk has changed for 2019.  No fear, as this does not mean any changes to the system! The new term “Autograph Lottery Code” was adapted for a few reasons.  First, to many newcomers to RTX we want the wording to better define that the sign ups for autograph sessions is up to chance, just as it has always been.  We have noticed the previous phrasing of “Autograph Code” led new attendees to believe they were guaranteed a signing, which is not the case.  Unfortunately, there just aren’t enough signing slots to guarantee a session for every attendee. Second, now that we have added the Ultra badge with a perk of (2) GUARANTEED autograph signings of their choice, we wanted to be sure we accurately defined the difference between the two perks.


    Is the Karaoke Party the Platinum Party?
    The Karaoke Party is replacing the Platinum Party.  The Karaoke Party will be an awesome night for Ultra and Platinum badge holders to hang out with other community members, play games, mingle, and of course, karaoke! The party will be hosted by a Special Guest and you will have an opportunity to meet & greet with Rooster Teeth staff.


  • Update on the new community site!

    5 months ago

    kriss Community Manager

    Hello community! 


    I know this update is a long time coming that many of you have been waiting for, myself included.


    We are NOW, OFFICIALLY in an internal beta for the new community site! This is a HUGE milestone for us, and all of us are excited for this achievement. Right now, we are going through the new platform with the goal to work with our amazing Engineering team, to figure out what works well (or...not so well), improve all sorts of aspects, and ultimately create a fantastic experience for you when the community site is able to go public. 


    We know you have been waiting for updates on the new site (some of you curious if it was even on our radar) and we want you to know that it has been, it is, and it will be because this is a huge priority for us. 


    For future updates and other news, myself, Chelsea, or Barbara will be making those announcements when we can. 


    That said, below is a sneak peek of the internal beta. Can't wait to show you more!


    <3

    Ashley The Know

    This week on Club Club we're watching Stardust! It's a 2007 movie based on the book by Neil Gaiman and we can't wait to talk about it. If you want to watch before this weekend, it's currently streaming on Netflix (in the US, at least... not sure about other regions. Sorry!), but it's also available to rent on YouTube/Google Play, Amazon, and iTunes.


    We want to include your thoughts in the show!


    You can suggest a "Movie Club" style question about the themes of the movie we should discuss.


    You can also leave us a comment about something in the movie that surprised you, a moment you particularly enjoyed, etc. and we'll shout out some of your thoughts in the episode. OR you can tweet us your thoughts using the hashtag #ClubClub.


    I CAN'T WAIT TO DISCUSS THIS MOVIE WITH EVERYONE!

  • Murder Room Now Available to Everyone & Show Changes

    6 months ago

    Podrick

    I'm getting so many messages from you saying that your parents and friends are watching Murder Room, which is awesome and disturbing stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye .  I'm so happy you guys are having fun with this show!  New episodes will now be available to everyone on the site a week after their release to FIRST members.  So tell even more of your friends and family to watch!


    I've also been following the feedback.  Thanks for all the great comments and suggestions.  I know more time is something you really want from Murder Room. While episodes two through four keep the current time rules of the original pilot, I am changing things up a bit in the last episode of this run.  I'm giving the council a little more breathing room while hopefully not changing the overall pace of the show, especially the ending.  


    Some of you are wondering if the mysteries will always be heavy.  Nope.  We are playing a game of murder so some stories will obviously be serious, but we are having some fun with this too.  


    Thanks for watching!  We want to keep you guessing and making more episodes!

  • Hardcore Tabletop Drops Today

    6 months ago

    geoff

    Hey-o,


    Life used to suck. It’s harsh, but true. The world was so boring, that as recently as 80 years ago, people had to pretend to be a thimble or a fucking wheelbarrow just to pass the time. Thankfully technology came along and made the world actually fun. For instance, now we get to pretend to be much cooler shit, like giant noses and moustaches.


    I’m speaking of course, of Hardcore Tabletop. If you haven’t heard of it yet, we basically take boring old “who even cares who wins?” Monopoly, and dramatically ratchet up the fun and stakes. How, you say? How is it possible to take that game and make it fun in 2018? It’s quite simple.


    Real Money


    Real Jail Time (sort of)


    Obviously, I’ll be the banker. Jack is going to wear a big hat. And it’s going to be a lot of fun. There are eight episodes that’ll go up weekly on Tuesdays. FIRST members can check out the first two episodes today. If you’re not a FIRST member, then you can’t pass go, and you definitely can’t collect $200. You can watch the first episode for free, though (but only the first one).


    Thanks for playing along.

  • RTX London 2018- Autograph Code Information

    nicolew Events Specialist

    Hello RTX London 2018 Attendees!


    We are excited to be over in London in just 25 days and see all of your smiling faces! We can’t wait for year two in London to begin.


    We wanted to update everyone on Autograph Codes to explain how they work, and important dates approaching you need to know.


    As a reminder, Platinum badges come with two (2) Autograph Codes, while Weekend badges come with one (1) Autograph Code.  An Autograph Code guarantees you the opportunity to reserve a spot in an autograph signing session, but it does NOT guarantee you will get into every signing you want.  There are a certain number of slots per autograph signing session and they fill quickly. So we recommend be ready when autograph signing sessions go live to reserve your spot.


    IMPORTANT DATES:

    22 August, 11:59 PM GMT = Cut-off date to buy a badge and receive an autograph code

    24 August, 3 PM GMT = Codes and instructions emailed out to Platinum & Weekend badge holders

    27 August, 3 PM GMT = Autograph Signing Schedule posted

    5 September, 5 PM GMT = Platinum badge holders access to reserve

    7 September, 5 PM GMT = Weekend badge holders access to reserve

  • Day 5 coming to TV & Blu-ray, plus Season 3 updates

    7 months ago

    Hey guys. Long time no… sleep?


    Lots of you have been asking what’s up with Day 5, and today I FINALLY get to spill some big news -- Day 5 is coming to TV! Plus I’ve got updates on the upcoming Blu-ray release and season 3, so dig into the details below.


    DAY 5 & CRUNCH TIME ARE OFFICIALLY TELEVISION SHOWS!
    Season 1 of Day 5 will debut in the UK (courtesy of Sky UK) on Pick TV starting August 28th, and both seasons will air in the US on the El Rey Network beginning October 31st! We’re beyond excited for our broadcast and cable debuts, and are thrilled to work with such great partners. And as a bonus, Rooster Teeth's Crunch Time will also air on El Rey in the same window.

    rCqXV29.pngIn addition to helping us reach a wider audience, these deals are necessary for us to move forward with season 3. However, it does mean Day 5 episodes will be coming off Rooster Teeth for a six-month window starting at the end of October, and we wanted to make sure you had plenty of advance notice to check out the unwaking nightmare. If you’re not a Rooster Teeth FIRST member already, you can sign up for a free trial here.


    DAY 5 BLU-RAY DROPS AT RTX!
    The Season 1 & 2 Combo Blu-ray will debut at RTX 2018 (Aug. 3-5) and be available in the Rooster Teeth store later next month. All 14 episodes of the show, with all behind-the-scenes materials and Day 5 Stories spinoffs, plus new exclusive commentaries from the cast and crew. Speaking of cast and crew, we’ll be running amok at RTX with an official Day 5 Panel and Cast Signing Session, if you’re looking for someone to sign those beautiful, newborn baby Blu-rays.

    SO WHERE THE HELL IS SEASON 3?!

    You’ve probably already figured it out, but Season 3 has been delayed into next year. We have a very specific vision for the series -- and the level of scope we want to achieve moving forward -- but we want to make sure it’s done right, and that the show can reach as broad an audience as possible. We’re currently in negotiations to co-produce season 3 with a partner, and I promise to update you on concrete details as soon as humanly possible.


    We have some really, really cool stuff in store and I can’t wait to share more. Thanks so much for your passion for the series, and your patience as we work to give you the best damn show we can.

    Bonjour, my friends!

    In case you happened to miss the news yesterday, we just launched my new collection in the RT Store: French with Benefits! (huehue)


    Barb_Adventure_Desktop_V102.jpg


    I've been very inspired by a lot of "french" style lately, and wanted to make a collection that uses that inspiration, as well as unique, custom-made pieces. For this, we have 2 shirts, a suede cap, a tote bag, and... our first ever DRESS! (photos below). I am so happy with the way everything turned out, and am a big fan of pieces you can dress up or down.

    Huge shoutout to the design/photography/store teams for making this possible. I am so excited to see these adorable pieces on your bodies. Go grab 'em!


    BISOUS! 

  • All Game Attack Sub Revenue in August Is Going To Extra Life

    8 months ago

    CraigSkitz

    Hello RT community!!! 


    Today we're SUPER pumped to announce that ALL subscriber revenue Game Attack earns from Twitch in the month of August will be donated to Extra Life this year! We see this as an opportunity to raise some money for a great cause. In addition, we're going to match all Tier 1, 2 & 3 sub revenue up to $2,500. That means if we have $1,000 in sub revenue and $250 comes from Tier 1, 2 & 3 subs on Twitch, we'll make a total donation of $1,250.


    Extra Life is a BIG deal for RT every year. Since no other brands at Rooster Teeth or Let's Play aside from Kinda Funny stream on Twitch, this is an awesome chance for the RT community to come together & use their free Twitch Prime subs to go to a great cause. 


    Why are we announcing this two weeks before August? Because Like all things Game Attack - this has to be a grassroots campaign to spread the word about this opportunity to give big to Extra Life! We're asking for your help to hit up the RT community pages and even other brands - on Reddit, Twitter, on Facebook, and on RoosterTeeth.com!


    If you'd like to support you can sub to GA on Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/gameattackteam) and hopefully we can raise some serious money for the kiddos. 


    Game Attack's Twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/gameattackteam

    Let's have a great August!

  • Rooster Teeth Creative Community

    Aloha y'all.


    My name is Tony Simonetta. I'm a huge Disney Parks fan, tiki enthusiast, and I hate cooked fruit. I'm also Rooster Teeth's Lead Merchandise Designer, which means I get to work with our talented team of in-house artists to create our full portfolio of merch designs for the Rooster Teeth Store.

    I'm very excited to announce Community Creative, our new initiative to feature products designed by members of the Rooster Teeth Community and shine a light on the amazing artists behind the work. Starting this Friday with our latest Achievement Hunter merch drop, when you see the Community Creative logo it will signify that one of your fellow community members are responsible for the artwork on that piece. They have put blood, sweat, and tears into creating artwork for your favorite Rooster Teeth and Let's Play shows. And Funhaus.


    cTBFz64.jpg


    But it's not  just a fancy new logo! We'll also be featuring our Community Creatives on journals and Rooster Teeth social throughout the year so you can get to know the artists better. Plus, the Rooster Teeth Store will have a special collection page with all of our Community Creative merch so you can easily collect them all.

    Here's a peek at one of the shirts dropping this Friday from Community Creative and Achievement Hunter fan, Sami Jen! (@sami_jen on Twitter)

    Check out Sami Jen's Art here: www.samijen.com


    I can't wait to show the Rooster Teeth Community the awesome merch we've got coming, so stay tuned. Finally, a huge Thank You goes out to all our previous Community Creatives for the amazing work they’ve done on the dozens of designs we’ve featured on the Rooster Teeth Store. We can’t wait to work with you again!


    Mahalo,

    Tony Simonetta
